Outside my window: It's sunny and cold, but so nice out there. We are tempted to open all the windows and air out the house, but have discovered it's still a bit cold for that idea. It's a beautiful day though.
I am listening to: my Hans Zimmer station on Pandora. A Transformer soundtrack song is up at the moment. A second ago it was Tron. I love movie soundtracks. I really really do. (Oh, now it's changed to Sherlock Holmes.) One of my favorite things to do is to guess what movies it's from and then click over to see if I'm right or not. I love doing this so much, in fact, that once upon a time I made YouTube movies for "guess the movie." Here's my favorite one:
Wow, that's fun to remember! I did that YEARS ago! If you feel like it, comment with your guesses! And I'll try my best to remember if you are right or not! :)
Song of the week: I just really like this song... how about you?
TV Talk: American Idol became live shows this past week, so the top 24 performed and then they narrowed it down to ten plus three judge's choices. It was quite the fun show to watch. I was happy the Korean kid got in, and I'm also enjoying Colton and I can't remember who else. I'm finding it interesting the kids who choose to sing Adele and can't even come close. Let's see, Survivor was okay. Not loving the season so far. Every thing else seems to be on a bit of hiatas right now, and I didn't even watch any Netfilx shows, so there's not much TV to report on. I know you are so sad about that. But hey, I did watch this preview for Falling Skies! Does this show look awesome or what? Season two starts in summer... when though? I have no idea:
Books Finished: Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale
Books Started: The Savage Grace by Bree Despain
Books currently reading: see above!
Books I'm anxious to read: see last week!
I am thinking: as always when I write this post... why? Ugh, I have to talk myself into it every week.
I'm grateful for: my big kids that rearranged their schedules and sacrificed their Saturday morning sleep in time so we could all be together for a family event yesterday. You are awesome!
What I learned this week: that sometimes you just have to post two things a day to your blog. Sometimes, there's lots to say and sometimes there's not. This week, I can't even think of a thing I'll be posting! The week after that I'm planning some fun blogiversary posts, but this coming week is a big blank! I hate that. And this is not a new learned, but something I seem to learn over and over again.
Around the house: People, I am happy to report that I took on the soap scum and WON! I found a Mr. Clean Magic Erasure just for soap scum and it actually worked! The bath tub looks awesome!
Recipe of the Week: I made these banana cookies from bananas that I bought and then promptly went ripe right before my eyes:
Favorite things of the week: participating in a book bomb and sending a book off as a surprise to an unsuspecting blog reader, going to a Dan Wells signing, watching people sign up for Bloggiesta, deciding on a spring break trip, going out to lunch with co-workers,
Family Matters: we survived parent teacher conferences. My kids are quiet, have I have told you this? I have very quiet kids, that's what the teachers say every single time!
Letter Writing Month: Is over, sadly. But this past week I got two letters! Thank you to my letter writers!
